tab completion for FreeBSD, like on linux, because that is the ONLY thing keeping me from switching? ;)

Before ever trying linux or freebsd, I was obsessed with learning FreeBSD. I am going to try this and give some support.

You mean tab completion on Linux as in bash?

Yes FreeBSD supports it, but not by default.
You can install several shells that support tab completion on FreeBSD, the most popular of these are bash, tcsh, and zsh.

To install bash on FreeBSD, type pkg_add -r bash as root.

Hope this helps. Give FreeBSD a try, you'll probably like it, and if you don't, what do have to lose?

You needn't install any additional software to enable tab-completion. Just set autocomplete and you're done (you'll probably want that line in your .cshrc so you don't have to type it in all the time).

Heck, tcsh had tab completion long before Linus ever even touched a computer or RMS began to pen his manifesto.
